EP144: How Grass Fed Beef Can Save The Environment! with Dr. Jason Rowntree


Have you ever heard that all animal products are destroying the environment?

Sadly, it is a very common MISconception today. While it is true that CAFOs (confined animal feeding operations) have negative environmental impacts, what is also true, is that certain types of animal agriculture can actually IMPROVE environmental health.

YES, it’s true.

In fact, in today’s podcast associate professor of Animal Science at Michigan State University, Dr. Jason Rowntree, will tell us all about his groundbreaking paper demonstrating that AMP grazing (a type of grass fed and finished grazing system) can sequester atmospheric carbon AND improve the mineral content of our soil!

Which is a HUGE deal because our environment is in big trouble and we all need to learn what we can do to help! So tune in with an open mind and prepare to be impressed by Dr. Rowntree’s awesome research and balanced perspective.

Here’s hoping it changes the way you choose animal products forever.
